Ever since he opened Stan's Donuts on the corner of Broxton and Weyburn in Westwood Village, Stan Berman has been serving up sumptuous donuts to generations of UCLA students and alumni since 1965. And it's easy to understand why, given Stan's personal recipe for success: use only the freshest of ingredients, be humble toward your customers, and exemplify great pride in every donut that is produced.
Now, I won't kid you. There isn't much to the imagination when you first walk into the parlor. The walls could use a new coat of paint, the chairs and tables have seen their better days, and the windows are not as clear as perhaps they used to be. But this is a working man's establishment, and what Stan's Donuts lacks in decor, they make up for it in flavor and originality. It's all there behind the glass counter looking more like gold bars in a bank vault than, well, donuts. And I'm told, Stan is there every morning at 3:00 a.m. putting it all together no matter if he's working on one of his famous peanut butter topped donuts or one of his famous cheese varietals. It's all good and goes good with a hot cup of joe. Enjoy!!!
